Creating customized data back-up using on-board tools(Windows 7)

By Sunday, February 05, 2012 No comments
             Regularly create a back-up of important data on external hard disks. Does Windows 7 support with such routine tasks?
             In order to configure this backup option, click on ‘Control Panel | System and Security | Backup your computer | Set up backup’. Note: This function can also be used for creating a backup of a pre-defined folder on a regular basis.
              As soon as it begins, Windows first asks for the target location for the data back-up. For this option, the system automatically recommends an external hard disk as long as one is connected. Select this drive, and click on ‘Next’. Now, you may specify whether Windows should select the data to be backed-up or you would specify the same manually. In order to create a system backup, you may continue with the Windows recommendation.
               It is also possible to create a backup of the most important directories on a regular basis. For this purpose, activate the ‘Let me choose’ option and click on ‘Next’. The default selection is same as the previous Windows recommendation. You can now customize it, whereby you can select or exclude folders and libraries individually for the backup. Deactivate the ‘Save data for newly created user’ option and click on the arrow in front of ‘Libraries’. For example, simply leave the ‘Documents’ library activated. Moreover, deactivate the ‘Integrate system image of drives’, otherwise every time the backup process starts, Windows will create a copy of the complete system drive. Subsequently, click ‘Next’. Windows once again summarizes the settings and recommends an automatic schedule for future repetitions of this backup plan. In order to carry out backup on a daily basis, click on the ‘Change schedule’ button on left side. In the ‘Frequency’ field, set the value ‘Daily’ and also select the desired ‘Time’. Also ensure that multiple backup processes do not start at the same time, and confirm the schedule with ‘OK’. In the end, click on ‘Save settings and run backup’.
               In the future, Windows automatically creates back-up of your important data on the external hard disk as long as it is connected to the system.
